This week's show is for the bibliophiles. We take a deeper dive into the unusual story of Ferdinand, the pacifist bull who terrified dictators and earned a rebuke from Ernest Hemingway (he never liked bulls much anyway). Then we poke around the margins of old library books and discover the forgotten stories of mourning mothers and licentious lovers. Plus we talk with authors and educators exploring new worlds with literature.
